Madness Unnecessary Miniaturisation

I work(ed) in microelectronics.

I get the idea of integration to reduce size and cost.

But WTF do we need "micro" blade fuses on cars for?!

None of my accumulated fuses, piggybacks etc fit the Jeep because they are all stupidly small fuses.

Is this to make it more difficult to find when you drop one?!

**** off you size obsessed ****s!

nano SIM cards, I'm looking at you too!

Now I have to go buy some new "improved" small ones.

Can you imagine how small phones would be by now if turning them into computers hadn't taken off?

Well it could be as small as would fit in an ear. However is the size not governed by having to pick up the voice as well as send the incoming sound to the ear. Separate elements perhaps.
